When writing a script to display an RSS feed, I got the following error:


Error: Object required: '[string, 136]'

This is because I was using the SET command to create a string, as shown below:

Dim itm
itm = lnk.link
Response.Write(itm)
Dim itmid
Set itmid = Split(itm,"=")(1)

resulted in the error

Error: Object required: '[string, 136]'

where this…

Dim itm  
     itm = lnk.link
     Response.Write(itm)
     Dim itmid
     itmid = Split(itm,"=")(1)

..resulted in no errors.
